The Realme 6 was launched in March 2020 and still is one of the best mid-rangers in town. It had excellent value for money and managed to provide a more compelling overall package than its competitors.
It has a 6.5-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 with a 90 Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, it packs an octa-core MediaTek Helio G90T. It can be configured with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage. It has a quad-camera setup at the back with a 64MP main shooter, 8MP ultrawide sensor, 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. It has a 16MP selfie camera. All of this is powered by a decently sized 4300 mAh cell. It has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor with support for microSD cards. It supports 30W fast-charging and can be fully charged in less than an hour.
Out of the box, it ran RealmeUI based on Android 10. RealmeUI was Realme’s attempt to clean up their software and provide a look closer to stock Android. And Realme was kind of successful in their attempt. They did manage to spruce up their visual design and move away from ColorOS. But it is still loaded with bloatware and in-built ads.
But Realme has been releasing software updates for the Realme 6 and they released a new one just today. The update includes the latest August Android Security Patch, fixes some known issues, and improves the overall system stability. Some of the newly added features are the Super night-time standby feature and smooth scrolling. Focus mode has received independent toggles and now you can long-press to uninstall apps directly from the app drawer. The notification panel now has an OTG Switch toggle.
